On behalf of the Colorado Public Health Association and the Conference Planning Committee, we would like to cordially invite you to attend the 2016 Public Health in the Rockies Conference at The Village at Breckenridge, September 14-16, 2016. Registration is now open!
The 2016 Public Health in the Rockies Conference — embracing the theme “Moving Upstream: Data, Policy, Partnership” — will convene to provide an opportunity for education, networking and skill development of the professionals in Colorado and surrounding states. The conference is designed to build a more competent public health workforce and to strengthen our public health systems. Conference organizers are the Colorado Public Health Association, the Colorado Society of Public Health Education and the Public Health Nurses Association of Colorado.
We look forward to making this another great learning opportunity for our colleagues attending the conference, but also to share this beautiful setting, Breckenridge, a destination where you can unwind and enjoy yourself before returning back to your work.
Serving Colorado for over 78 Years
Founded in 1938, the Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) is the oldest and largest non-profit association representing Colorado’s statewide network of current and emerging public health professionals, businesses and organizations.
We are an active, dynamic and growing organization that aspires to be the Voice of Public Health in Colorado.
Public health is a Big Tent! We are not just healthcare professionals, local public health officials, researchers or academics.
Any individual, agency, nonprofit organization, company or others working to promote public health–including healthcare, wellness, nutrition, food safety, physical activity, the environment, outdoor recreation, clean water, sustainable and healthy communities–you are part of the public health community, too!
Good for the health & prosperity of Colorado’s women, children and our State!
By investing a small amount of state funds in a long-standing, effective program, we can:
- Support the health and well-being of women and children by reducing unintended pregnancies,
- Empower women to attain their education goals, helping create financially secure and strong families,
- Lower the abortion rate, and
- Reduce the number of people using Medicaid benefits and other public assistance programs.
